From the Bay Area, we moved our family of kids, dogs & horses up to the beautiful Divide in 2005. Half way between The Bay and the Slopes we found this community irresistible. For our first 6 years up hear we continued to work in the East Bay as owners of a Walnut Creek hair studio. In early 2012 the opportunity to exchange our hair business for full time local life couldn't be passed up. Now we are busier than ever helping in the school gardens and coaching our girls teams. This really is a fabulous place to raise our girls and truly enjoy life. We love being able to offer our cottages as a comfortable, central location for visitors of the Gold Country to stay. We know you are going to enjoy it here as much as we do.
We found Pilot Hill on our way up to the slopes snow-boarding and fell in love with The Divide at once. Our family enjoys Nature's playground at its finest all year. In the heat of Summer we go swimming, canoeing or fishing in the lakes and rivers. Year round we get out on the many miles of trails with our horses or hiking and biking, and in the Winter it is a short drive up to the slopes. At the end of a busy day we might go for dinner at the local Grill/Pizza where we always see others from our small community.
